Lawyer: SD Mayor Bob Filner is Untrained

SAN DIEGO (AP) - An attorney representing San Diego's mayor says the city should foot the bill to defend Bob Filner against a sexual harassment lawsuit because he never received state-required sexual harassment training.

Filner's lawyer Harvey Berger made the argument in a letter to City Attorney Jan Goldsmith on Monday, one day before the City Council unanimously voted to deny Filner funds for his legal defense.

Local media published parts of the letter Wednesday.

Seven of nine City Council members have joined former supporters in urging Filner to resign.

Filner's former communications director is suing the mayor and city, alleging the former congressman made unwanted sexual advances.

Seven other women have made similar allegations.
